What is product liability?No one uses a product expecting it to break or fail. When a product’s defect becomes apparent, it can take the user by surprise. If the defect causes a serious injury, the manufacturer, wholesaler or seller may be liable for damages.
When you purchase a product, you expect that it will function properly – free from defects. Sometimes, a product flaw may cause serious injuries or accidents. All companies involved in the production of these products may be held responsible for damages that arise.
Every year, thousands are injured by defective products that have been carelessly developed, advertised or sold by irresponsible companies.
Poorly designed, built and marketed products are responsible for countless numbers of injuries and even death on an annual basis.
In light of the serious challenges that the victims of dangerous or defective products often face, product liability laws allow consumers to hold the manufacturers of these products accountable for their negligence in producing an unsafe product and the harm it causes.
People who have been injured by these critically flawed products have the right to demand that the manufacturers pay for the damages that their negligence has caused. Product Liability Laws are the vehicle to hold them accountable.
Injuries caused by defective products can range from unpleasant side effects to bodily harm and even death. Anyone who is a victim of an unsafe product may be awarded damages to be paid by the manufacturer, designer, or seller of that product.
